Supercross 2022 TV lineup, MXGP schedule announced

Welcome to Racerhead, coming from the Carolinas, and a mini-road trip. Just arrived here for a family trip which meant I missed last night’s Moto Fite Klub which was just down the road in Traveler’s Rest, SC. Weege will tell you all about this below. And while we’re deep into the offseason when it comes to AMA racing, there has been a lot of news in the motorcycle world, and a few glimpses of things to come.

First, the announcement of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross 2022 TV package. It features a record three live races and 13 total hours of coverage on NBC. And all 17 tours will be live in one form or another on digital platforms NBC, CNBC, USA Network, Peacock and NBC Sports. Why so many different networks? Because 2021 was the final year for NBC Sports Network, the main network for SX and the coverage of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. It may seem confusing at first glance – supercross on CNBC? – but knowing what Feld Entertainment went through to get this package for the fans is commendable. I know that a huge new audience will be watching CNBC for the first time on the night of Saturday January 8th as they will be broadcasting the Anaheim Supercross opener live! It’s also great to have Anaheim back on the calendar for two races.

In Europe, the calendar for the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship has been released, and it is also returning to normal, with the return of flyaway races in Argentina and Indonesia, and far fewer races in Italy, although we should all be happy that the Italians stepped in to accommodate so many rounds as the series was under the constant threat of cancellations due to COVID-19 restrictions. Of course, the MXGP schedule is only tentative at this time as it always seems to go through one or two or three changes over the winter, so stay tuned. And speaking of winter, opening February 20 at Matterley Basin in Britain is very risky, from a weather perspective, but I hope promoter Steve Dixon has a good weekend after some of the recent struggles. which he had to overcome, including the Monster Energy 2017.
